The Drs: Rheumatoid vs. Osteoarthritis
Later, Dr. Travis Stork welcomed Dr. Freda Lewis-Hall, who shared her advice and information on arthritis. Osteoarthritis is the most common type, with symptoms appearing around middle age. It’s known as “wear and tear” arthritis, and as cartilage wears away over time, people will experience symptoms such as pain and stiffness of the joints.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an auto-immune disorder not limited to joints. It may involve other organs and cause fatigue and a feeling of illness. Rheumatoid arthritis also affects people of all ages. Dr. Travis explained how rheumatoid arthritis destroys cell membrane and destroys joint spaces.
One big difference between osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis is that rheumatoid arthritis often affects both sides of the body equally. Futher, rheumatoid arthritis comes on quickly or in flares, while osteoarthritis happens more slowly over time.
The Doctors: Remedies For Rheumatoid Arthritis
The Doctors spoke with Elizabeth, a relatively young woman who noticed rheumatoid arthritis starting to develop during college. She had trouble typing her papers, and even found difficulty in basic tasks such as brushing her teeth. Dr. Lewis-Hall recommended that anyone experiencing similar symptoms visit his or her doctor.
Try low-impact exercise such as swimming if you are suffering from arthritis. Heating pads, warm baths and also cold compresses can also help ease symptoms.
